Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 16

Chapter two deals with the perhaps the most played opening and counter in Xiangqi today: the Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense.
There are 13 sections to this chapter.
Two more very aggressive variations in the left riverbank horse variation
are shown here today.  Not for the weak of heart..
